Carline Information

Carline Morning Logistics
Our doors will have a staff person there to greet students from 8:45am-9:00am. Anyone arriving late will need to use the front office door and sign your student in.

Preschool families – Please park in the playground lot and walk your student to the corner cafeteria door. If you also have a K-8 sibling, please walk your K-8 students to the playground ramp door where Mr. Tesch will greet you.

K-8 families – Please enter the IHM church lot from Mayview Road via the second (south) entrance. Form a line heading toward the church and snake around to the main school office door. This will give us more space for the line while keeping cars off of Excelsior and Mayview.

Carline Afternoon Logistics
We will use the front main entrance for students riding the bus. Carlines will form at the parish/church doors, the cafeteria door (preschool) and the back playground door. Please see below for your assigned line.

Preschool families – please park in the playground parking lot and walk to the cafeteria door to greet your student at 3:45pm. Please wait in your car for your K-8 siblings, they will come out with the rest of carline after the 3:55pm bell.

Families with the last names A-H – please line up in the playground parking lot. The line will form to your left as you enter the parking area. Only preschool families who need to park should exit their cars.

Families with the last names I-Z – please line up off of Mayview Road heading toward the church entrance.

Additional Opportunities

Home and School
Our Home and School Committee serves the school community by hosting events and activities in addition to supporting the teachers, students and staff in many ways. One way that Home and School serves Notre Dame Academy is by organizing volunteers for a variety of areas, activities and fundraisers.  

Lunch Program

Notre Dame Academy is proud to offer a unique home-cooked hot lunch program for students. Our kitchen is fully staffed and students overwhelmingly enjoy the menu items offered. Students prepay for lunches and maintain individual accounts through PIN numbers. The state and federally funded Free and Reduced Lunch program is available for eligible families. Your child’s eligibility status (free, reduced, paid lunches) is private data. Families must re-apply each school year to determine eligibility for the free and reduced lunch program. Further information on the lunch program is available in our handbook or you may contact the office.

Before And After Care Programs

To help our working families, Notre Dame Academy offers before and after school care for all families who need this service. Our two programs allow you to pick the days and times that work for you. We also offer a summer camp for all ages. If you are interested in this option for your PK child, you may register through ProCare.

If you are interested in this option for your K – 8th grade child, you may register using the link listed above on this parent resource page under the subtitle forms.

“I am a volunteer from the IHM parish and have volunteered at NDA since its opening. Nowhere have I witnessed and felt a part of a more caring, loving, Christian family. I witness children being given such wonderful opportunities to learn and experience areas for not only academic and leadership growth but more importantly, their spiritual growth.”
